No, Willie Wombat - from the five dollars returned (30-25) each drinker takes one and the waiter gets the other two. You do not put in another two apiece.

OK, but it says "you take one AND give two"...Is it the Royal We that gives two?

So, how much do I give? Two? Or, 2/3 = a fraction? As some of my students have said, "I don't DO fractions!"

Once I know this I can figure it out...I think.

Ah, okay...so that was it? One guy cheats...probably it was Dire.

I am terrible at these things...I got caught up trying to just get the set point assumptions, and ended up being totally lost, and I think I wasn't even supposed to interpret it the way I did.

If I can't write something down, or make a drawing or equation, I am lost trying to sort it out in a purely "cognitive" fashion if you follow.

So, did you win a prize from Rob?
